    Good Morning, Oopsters.

    Alley should have listened to Doc.

    Yes, indeed.

    The Dr doesn’t like to say I told you so.

    The time it takes Oop to get dressed will be just enough delay to give Mary time to reach them


    As big as Alley is, he’ll look monstrously big in that parka

    Morning, Oopsters.
    As Mary climbs the slope, her foot will slip on the ice and she’ll fall. This will casue a delay in Doc’s plans as Oop will go down and rescue her.

    Probably because it would be stating the obvious.

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley and readers of Alley Oop. Who didn’t see this coming? On Aug 12 Alley said I’m
    tough! I can handle a little cold. I guess it’s more than little cold and Alley is suffering his short term memory loss
    regarding his statement.. Fortunately Doc brought it along in his magic backpack.

    Alley use to not be bothered by the cold. I guess either Carol forgot, or Alley is just old.

    Wind chill owww. Doesn’t have to be freezing if you get wet. I take back my faith in the poncho. This is a job for a slicker and one of those broad brimmed oriental rice paddy hats.
    .
    Doc’s hood doesn’t look waterproof to me. He’s gonna be in trouble.

    My plan would be to present the story at a pace that was interesting and entertaining.

    now now CB it took just 2 panels to do what others take 10 -20 to do:
    1. Set up complications are coming
    2. Result of Oop relying on his self instead of respecting the Doc’s warning.
    3. Follow thru of Doc’s reaction to Oop’s casual attitude.
    4. Set up of Doc not respecting Oop’s trespasser warning.
    5. A touch of recap so those not getting the Sunday paper can follow the story.
    .
    Putting the action forward in the 1st panel instead of last is unusual
    .
    The characters are interacting, the irony cycle is set. Mom nature is taking aim with a couple of well placed lightning bolts…
